THE OCEAN DEBATE FORUM
The Oceans Communication Center, a project sponsored by EGF and it Concessionaires, is an initiative that aims to disseminate and share updated information about Oceans, linking all Portuguese-speaking countries from Lisbon, which will become a pole information about this topic.
The first cycle begins on July 4, at 4:00 p.m., in the Maynense Class of the Lisbon Academy of Sciences (Rua Academia das Ciências, 19, Lisbon), and is the beginning of quarterly cycles of LiveStream lectures and made by national and international personalities based in historical sites in Lisbon.
AN INTERNATIONAL VIRTUAL AUDIENCE
The central idea of the project is to foster active interconnection between the various entities and authorities linked to the sea, nautical, waste and, in particular, universities and research centers, local authorities in each country, non-governmental organizations and foundations in Portugal and in the Portuguese-speaking countries, thus creating a participatory and conscientious audience on current affairs related to the Oceans.
The lectures will be virtual and interactive, with LiveStream system, in direct connection with the various entities and with dissemination on the website www.ccoceanos.pt and on social networks (YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram etc.) bringing together the publics of the Portuguese-speaking countries and Portuguese-speaking communities in the world.
EGF AND THE OCEANS
EGF is aware of the current problems with our Oceans, which are experiencing increasingly high levels of plastic waste. The collection, recovery and treatment of waste promoted by EGF influences in a very positive way the sustainability and health of our Oceans, since it gives the correct treatment for the waste that would often have as final destination the sea.
In this context, EGF will participate in this 1st Cycle of lectures with an active voice on issues of sustainability, environmental education and circular economy, so that it is clear that the way to ensure that Oceans are not contaminated by waste is to guarantee their recovery and treatment on land.
All lectures of the first cycle are available to watch. Click here.
